The service takes place two days after Walter Gretzky died at the age of 82.
A small memorial sprung up for Walter Gretzky outside the arena that bears his son’s name in Brantford on Friday.
Two hockey sticks — one full-sized, one miniature — and a Canadian flag adorn the sign marking off Walter Gretzky’s parking spot outside the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre.
Tributes poured in for the elder Gretzky after his death was announced by his son late Thursday night.
